Actors Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan complete 50 years of togetherness today. The couple tied the knot on June 3, 1973, and are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary this year. On this occasion, their daughter and entrepreneur Shweta Bachchan posted a throwback picture of her parents while revealing the secret to a happy marriage.

In the picture, Amitabh is wearing a floral shirt with flared pants, leaning over a wall, and looking at Jaya Bachchan. Dressed in a saree, Jaya is seen looking into her husband’s eyes. Shweta captioned the post, “Golden. Once on being asked what the secret to a long marriage is, my mother answered - love, and I think my father was - the wife is always right. That's the long & short of it !!”

Bollywood celebs quickly reacted to the post. Shweta’s daughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, commented with a heart and a crying emoticon, while filmmaker Zoya Akhtar wrote, “How beautiful are they????”

Navya also wished her grandparents by sharing a picture of them on her Instagram stories from the sets of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. She wrote, “50 years” along with red heart emoji. Navya also added the song Teri Bindiya Re from Abhimaan as the background music.

On the special occasion, Amitabh wrote a blog post, with the words, “June 3 dawns in a few .. and the years be counted as 50 .. love respect and gratitude for the wishes, that have come and perhaps shall come ..”

Amitabh and Jaya reportedly fell in love with each other while shooting for Hrishikesh Mukerjee’s 1971 film Guddi. They later starred in movies such as Zanjeer, Abhimaan, Sholay, Silsila, and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham.

On the work front, Amitabh will next be seen in Nag Ashwin ‘s Project K. Jaya, on the other hand, is set to appear in Karan Johar’s upcoming film, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
